  • Halfway there and still going!

    By A-real
    Yesterday was week 4 day 3. When I started My pace was 2 mi in 30 min and the full 5k took 46. Yesterday the 2mi mark was 25 min and the 5k mark was 38. I’ve tried several of these couch to 5k apps before and have never made it past week 2. I either got lazy or the runs got too difficult too quickly and I became discouraged. Right now I’m pretty motivated to keep going! I was hesitant at first to pay because 9.99 is a bit steep. But it has been worth it and maybe since I paid I feel more obligated to follow through. The only downside to the app is that it doesn’t give cues while on in the background. I would also enjoy more words of encouragement during the run.
  • Thanks

    Love this app! It’s a great mix of walking and running. Coming from someone who is very sedentary.

    I never thought I’d be able to run the way I’m running with this app. I always hated it and avoided it to the max but this app has literally changed my life. I’m able to run a hell of a lot LONGER AND FASTER then EVER. I love this it paces you and pushes your limits (with ease). Now I enjoy running and do extra runs at least 3x per week just for fun. Totally worth it. I don’t regret buying the app. $9.99 is a small price to pay for a healthier, active life. Thank you!!
  • Awesome

    By Rexx1990

  • Love it!!

  • Don’t buy lifetime...

    By AshNicole09
    First I will say I loved this app. The pacing is great and I can run a full 5k after doing the program. Sure it’s something you could do yourself without the app but I loved that I could just hit go and concentrate on my running instead of timing myself because I knew the app was going to tell me what to do. Now I paid the lifetime instead it the 3 months. That’s where I get disappointed. Silly me had hopes that paying the lifetime I could use other apps by the same company to continue to improve my running. Well, jokes on me. I downloaded 10k Runner to see and guess what: I could have just downloaded that app in the first place and did the 5k program I paid for FOR FREE before the 10k app made me pay. All in all I don’t regret spending the money on the app because that helped motivate me to keep using it but I wish I would have paid for 3 months instead of lifetime because that gets me nowhere. I don’t use the app anymore because I use a Fitbit and their app to track my runs now because it gives me my pace mile by mile. Which is another disappointment with this app. You have to figure your own pace at the end of your run and that will include your 5 minute warm ups and cool downs. In short: good app? Yes. Just don’t spend more than you need too.
  • It's really teaching me how to run a 5k

    By Katannegage
    I LOVE THIS APP. I love how it trains me back to longer paces over a period of time after I’ve taken a break from running. The music voiceover to tell me how far I’ve gone during the run is a great tool. I started running from this app and this app always brings me back after the winter is done.
  • Does exactly as advertised

    By jbond970
    This app gets the job done; no glitches; starts new runners on a pace that doesn’t over do it; directions are clear; coach-bot lady is encouraging. Good signposting on all app to let you know what you have left, what’s coming up next and what you just finished. Works seamlessly with Apple Music app. Can’t complain, won’t complain. Cheers.
  • Ok

    By 4kidangie
    It seems good but there are things I don’t like about it. If you don’t tap “done” it keeps going. If you forget to tap done and it kept going, you can’t edit it. So I don’t know how far I went or truly how I did.
